I don't know if the Dead had any other circus type acts but I do remeber a pyschedelic juggler opening for the Starship. He had all sorts of nutty things to juggle w/ then he would go black light and his stuff was all day-glow. I know his first name is Jay and then years later I saw this guy opening for David Gillmore on the Peir in N.Y.
It was said the Gillmore experience needed more night sky so they used this guy as a time filler.

I think I'd have left after the psychedelic juggler. Why is it that the Airplane was so great and the Starship was so insanely boring? A true mystery. (But then, there was Wings ... maybe there was some kind of Boringness Flu that was going around. You were only susceptible if you'd once been great.)
